Singapore - Broadband Market
Already boasting an elaborate Internet network, with around 100% of Internet households having broadband access by 2009 Singapore has certainly not allowed itself to become complacent. The island state remains keen to build on its excellent technology base. The government has continued to maintain a strong commitment to making broadband Internet access widely available to the population and at the same time lifting the quality of the access. Apart from the excellent infrastructure available to support broadband services, the administration and the operators have put a major effort into expanding these services and increasing the ease of access, one such initiative being the Next Generation National Infocomm Infrastructure (Next Gen NII) and the Next Generation National Broadband Network (NGNBN). This report reviews the state of Singapore's broadband market.

Singapore - Broadcasting
For some years now Singapore's TV broadcasting sector has been feeling the impact of convergence. The liberalisation of the media industry in Singapore was triggered in 2000 when the then Ministry of Information and the Arts announced that broadcasting operators could ‘look at' the telecommunications sector and telecommunications companies could ‘look at' the broadcasting sector. A new regulator for the sector, the Media Development Authority, was duly put in place. Whilst the media sector was initially slow to respond, it did finally take off and there has been substantial development over the last decade. The phenomenon of convergence eventually took hold and, although it has not exactly taken the expected path, it has given the sector a fresh boost. This report looks at the changes in the digital media market and the impact on the major players and customers.

Singapore - Key Statistics, Telecommunications Market, Regulatory and Infrastructure Overview
Singapore continues to maintain a strong positive outlook in the country's telecommunications sector. The island state has built a competitive telecoms market over the past three decades, aided by its geographical location and its excellent infrastructure. It was one of the first countries in the world to have a fully digital telephone network. The World Economic Forum has described Singapore as ‘Asia's most connected country', noting that it was leading the region in terms of ICT development. By early 2011 mobile penetration had reached 145%, with 3G customers comprising some two-thirds of the total mobile subscriber base. Singapore's mobile operators were already looking closely at the long-term evolution (LTE) platform for providing faster mobile broadband internet access into the future. This report looks at the growth of the telecom sector in Singapore and how it has been assisted in its development by the government's strong commitment to deregulation of the industry. The report also provides an overview of Singapore's domestic and international infrastructure.

Singapore - Major Telecommunications Players
More than 600 telecommunications licences have been awarded by the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), of which around 5% came under the Facilities-Based Operators category. The boom in licensing over the last decade has been the result of a hugely liberalised market and government policy that has strongly supported a progressive regulatory regime. This report looks at some of the major players in this dynamic, constantly changing environment. Despite a much more competitive market, Singapore Telecom (SingTel) clearly remains as a formidable player and has been busy developing new strategies, including regional expansion, as it adapts to the changing nature of the business.

Singapore - Mobile Communications - Major Operators
The dynamic nature of the mobile market in Singapore is reflected in the character of its three major operators - SingTel, Mobile One (M1) and StarHub. Even when growth appeared to have slowed somewhat in this highly competitive market, the three operators ensured that considerable effort went into value-added products and services. By early 2010 the number of mobile subscribers had reached seven million and a penetration rate of almost 140%. Whilst the market (and to some extent the operators) initially approached the launch of 3G in 2005 with a degree of caution, the 3G service offerings have been booming ever since. Coming into 2010, 3G services were growing at an annual rate of around 30% and made up 47% of the total mobile subscriber base. This report looks at the three big operators in Singapore's mobile market.
